special
showing of
‘Carrie’ and a
performance by
the band to raise

their "Electro-sexy" rock show will also

Chip Dimonick and guitarist Tony
Leone have parted ways. The band
released a statement in which they
made certain everyone knows there is
no bad blood; “Over the past two years,
Tony contributed immensely to Chip
DiMonick's ascent in the music
community. He is a great guitarist and a
great guy. We wish him nothing but the
best in his efforts to take his music
career to a higher level. Please join us in
supporting his next steps!”

exposure, radio circulation, and a
resounding buzz within the music
industry.

The CD is self-titled?
“The CD is, indeed, self-titled. It's sort
of a 7-song demo.
Where and when did you record it?
“We recorded with our buddy Chris
Procopio. The time frame is sort of
misleading, because we did it here
and there over the last year and a half,
when Chris had time to fit us in among
some of his other projects.”
Any upcoming gigs we should
know about?

Julie Michael is

Granati family
and a long-time
instructor. We asked
her about the art of
teaching guitar.
How long have you been teaching?
Julie: 15 years
Do you have a set program or do you
tailor lessons to the tastes of a
student?
Julie: I tailor it to the goals of the
student and parents. Some
students want to learn to play songs.
Others want to learn to play songs
and read, plus learn some theory.
Others only want to read, so I gear
each lesson individually.

right opportunity arises. We'll be
hitting it fairly heavily around the
area, too. In terms of other
upcoming events, we'll be at RPMs
on May 11th and The Dead Horse on
May 17th with Wildstreet. We also
have a new website at
www.lovesickrocks.com, which
features band news, a full listing of
upcoming shows, and some tracks
from the CD.
What are common problems you find
students run in to?
Julie: Positioning and fingering often
making it difficult to play a song. Often
students are just trying to get to the
note that they often trip over their
fingering making it more difficult to
play. Usually suggesting some
alternate fingering and positioning
makes a big difference. Probably the
other issue that I see a lot is that they
stop a lot making it hard for
them to hear the song. Also learning
to play through the songs no matter
how many mistakes helps them to
develop
their performance playing skills.
Is there an age group you prefer to
work with?
Julie: All ages. I've taught from 6-85.
Most students range from 7-45.
What levels and styles do you teach?
Julie: All levels but specialize in
beginners-intermediate.

MARAH Returns to Pittsburgh April 6
Hailing originally from New Your City,
Marah did a crash and burn that would
have swallowed
most bands in a
fiery impact
crater. Whether
they fled their
home, or wiped
the dust off of
their feet,
remains to be
seen. Either way,
they moved to
the hills of
Pennsylvania,
and in near-cliché manner, reinvented
themselves. Or perhaps they found out
who they’d been all along. And it matters
not one whit. The results are wonderful.
After arriving in PA, the two remaining
members of Marah, got a house, cobbled
together some gear and looked around.
They recorded Life is a Problem, some of
which is described as “equal parts
Grandpa Jones, Led Zeppelin, and Biggie
Smalls.”
Marah is coming again. Tenacious as a
goddam briar patch, this is a band that
has been dealt seemingly mortal
blows, yet continues to thrive,
continues to make music that speaks to
metal head and hill jack alike. We’re not
even going to discuss genre here, for in
Then something wonderful

happened—they discovered a book,
song.” And Marah plays that song so

would seemingly give a rather new
direction, or at the very least, reaffirm
the path that they had taken. It was a
book filled with songs of the hills.
Songs sung at lumber
camps. Songs played
around fires, and on
sagging porches. The
band decided to “to
record an album that
would attempt to
capture the book's
t r e m e n d o u s
atmosphere and
‘sense of place’ using
our own original
soundtrack.” The
results were beautiful.
Marah will be bringing Mountain
Minstrelsy to The Kollar Klub at 8:00
pm on April 6th. What to expect? Well,
there will be wonderful music played
by musicians who like to let the music
do the talking. Yeah, this stuff is
mountain music, traditional music, It’ll
be music to stomp to. It’ll be music that
will transcend genre—no matter what
your taste, you will walk out with a
smile. Because, like Neil Young says,
“It’s all one song.”

CD REVIEW
CD REVIEW
MUSIC MARKET
Long Time Divided
(Self Titled)
Heavy is the word which best
describes Long Time Divided, as in old
school heavy metal. Blistering guitar
riffs, pounding drums and lyrics belted
out with seismic force are the norms
throughout this offering.
Executed with real skill, this album is a
blast from the past, the golden age of
heavy metal. There is none of the selfindulgent pining of many of today’s
bands.
LE Shook
Self-titled demo
Eric Sweeney - Singer
Patrick Eberz - Drummer
Chris Ehrenberger - Bass / Guitarist
Michael Lewandowski - Bass / Guitarist
LE Shook has certainly turned some
heads recently as a participant in the
Hard Rock Rising Battle of the Bands.
Their 3 song demo showcases the high
energy rock sound which won them a
spot in the competition and deservedly
so. With a sound that can be compared
to national artists without being too tied
to any one influence, they are definitely
on the right track. The overall drive and
rhythm reminds one of a young Red
Hot Chili Peppers, especially on the
first 2 tracks, but does not fall into the
dreaded ‘hero worship zone’ so many
bands make the mistake of entering in
their formative stages.
Make no mistake; these gents are still
finding themselves. But from this
demo, it sounds as if the search will be
a short one.
“Main Street” features strong lyrics and
an excellent guitar solo courtesy of
Chris Ehrenberger, who along with
fellow guitarist Michael Lewandowski,
does double duty as a bass player. This
is a factor which will most likely allow
LE Shook to remain fresh and original
as they introduce new material, as the
2 can trade off for different sounds on
different songs. The constancy is
provided by drummer Patrick Eberz
and singer Eric Sweeney. Patrick’s
drumming is as solid as an old oak door
and he really hammers it on my favorite
track, “All We Know.” Throughout it all,
the rich sound of Eric Sweeney ties it
together, ranging from fast paced nearrapping on “All We Know” to more
melodic and introspective styling on
“Leaving”, the last track.
While still in development, this is nonethe-less a very good debut effort from a
band we will probably be hearing more
good things from in the future. Starting
out can be tough, but LE Shook has
entered the fray with fire and joy, as well
as talent and good instincts. – Jay

One contrast with the metal of the past,
however, is also the lack of selfindulgent guitar solos which songs
sometimes seemed to be written
around rather than vice-versa. And yet,
there is enough gravity to the songs to
keep them well above the simple party
rock water mark.
Two criticisms do loom large however.
One is the tendency to channel
influences too strongly. This was most
apparent on track 3, “February
Farewell”, which could’ve been a
previously un-released Cinderella
track. The other was a similarity of
groove to many of the tracks which
made them hard to distinguish from
one another at times, especially during
a casual listening.
This was nicely broken up by “Night
Runner” with its slower pace and
plaintive vocals and guitar
work.
“Home From Sea” was another nice
change of pace, with lyrics borrowed
from the Robert Louis Stevenson novel
Underwoods. A band that is well read
tends to write more interesting songs
than the “my life sucks/my girl broke
my heart/mommy didn’t love me
enough” whininess which is too
prevalent these days. Simply put,
whatever criticisms one can apply to
Long Time Divided, the tendency to
writeabout themselves too much is
definitely not one of them. Definitely
worth checking out if you like a more
traditional metal sound.
